My mum seldom had the opportunity to go overseas when she was young, and most of her adulthood was spent working and raising us. Her knees are basically disabled from the manual labour she used to do, and even after operating on them, she can’t walk very well. Taiwan is predominantly Chinese, and has great infrastructure for someone whose mobility is limited, so my girlfriend and I brought my mum to Taipei for a few days to soak in the atmosphere, shop and eat a lot, and generally have a nice vacation within a culture that is still relatable to her. 🙂
Really good design here :)))
Din Tai Fung for lunch on first day!!
Bought this Ironman figurine at a figurine shop we passed by randomly. The LED is a bit too strong though.
